TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF BROADCASTS FROM AYTON RADIO TOWER

Recent testing of the Ayton radio tower has confirmed that broadcast transmissions from the tower are interfering with emergency aviation communication channels. As such, Air Services Australia has requested that all transmissions be suspended until the problem can be rectified.

The radio tower will be offline and all broadcasts will be suspended on Thursday 17 March 2022 until further notice.

We thank you for your understanding and apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.

Community members are encouraged to download the ABC Listen app to keep informed of ABC radio broadcasts.
